This book was really funny, I have purchased a copy so that we can read it over and over again.

This Elephant and Piggie book is more goofy than some others. Our 3yo tends to like the more endearing ones better (like Should I Share My Ice Cream).

Another fun story by Mo Willems. Always a pleasure to read and share with others.

All the Piggy and Gerald books are simple reads but have humour that 3 y/o on up will love!

Mo Willems gets a great deal of my love and money because he is funny, smart and not ashamed to be silly with his books. Case in point, the next instalment of the whimsical Elephant and Piggie series.

In this instalment, Piggie finds that Gerald has broken his trunk and asks what happened. What unfolds is a long, and convoluted story involving two hippos, a rhino, a piano and a crazy stunt. It also has some of Willems trademark wacky misdirection and slapstick humour. Kids of all ages will love this book. Its simple text make it a great early reader or read aloud book.

Get this!
